Chalica is a weeklong holiday, during which we honor and celebrate our seven Unitarian Universalist Principles. It is a time dedicated to reflecting and putting into practice, through our words and deeds, one Principle per day for seven days.
For me, Chalica is an opportunity for introspection and a slowing down. This is a perfect year, as we are being asked to stay home, to really dive deep into our Principles and to build a meaningful UU spiritual practice for ourselves.
The celebration kicks-off at home on the first Monday in December and will end with a service the following Sunday, presented by LRE. Each night of Chalica via Facebook Live at 6:30 pm on the BBUUC Community Page, we will light our chalice candles together and share a reflection for the Principle of the day. Chalica Kits will be available Saturday December 5th in the church parking lot from 10:00 am -11:00 am. Please RSVP for a Chalica Kit at https://bbuuc.breezechms.com/form/b6e5d3 or reach out directly to Chris Jarman by text, email, or phone.
You can find additional resources by going to the UUA’s website, or by visiting one of the sites listed below.
And, as one of the Chalica songs puts it…
“Have a Happy, Happy, Merry, Joyous Chalica!”
